Buehrle Blasts Sox to Victory... Literally!

June 14 at Milwaukee Brewers


KW's Daily Special:
Bratwurst... Grilled to Perfection
It wasn't easy, but the Sox got to Trevor Hoffman and his near perfect ERA!

Short Take:   Mark Buehrle shocked us all with his first career homerun, helping his own cause in this White Sox winner!

On a beautiful June afternoon for baseball- just shy of 100 miles north of U.S. Cellular Field- the White Sox went into this afternoon's content looking to win the rubber match and series from the Brewers for the first time this decade. With Mark Buehrle on the bump, things automatically looked promising. Of course, who knew he'd help his own cause by hitting the first homerun of his career?! That is, in fact, what happened, and with a little clutch hitting in the ninth inning off of Milwaukee closer,Trevor Hoffman, the Sox prevailed 5-4!

Mark Buehrle started off shaky, but settled in nicely. He gave up a lead off double to Casey McGehee, who, with two out, came home on Price Fielder's single to center. The Brew Crew went up 1-0 early, but that lead only lasted until the top of the third when the Sox tied it at one, thanks to the most unlikely of candidates, Mark Buehrle. He took a Braden Looper pitch deep to right... so deep that it left the ballpark for his first career homerun! The many Sox fans who made the treck north let Buehrle know just what they thought of this amazing accomplishment and cheered him loudly. Unfortunately, the excitement of his first homer seemed too much for him, as he gave the lead right back when Casey McGehee put one in the seats to make it a 2-1 game.

The Sox went to work in the top of the fourth, plating three runs. With one out, Brian Anderson was hit by a pitch and Chris Getz singled him over to second. Gordon Beckham, who seems to be finding his swing, doubled to deep right, plating B.A. and Getz, putting the Sox up 3-2 at this point. They weren't done, though, thanks to hot-hitting Scott Podsednik. Pods singled to center, scoring Beckham and the Sox were up 4-2.

Unfortunately, Buehrle gave one run right back to the Brewers when Corey Hart homered to center. The Sox were clinging to that 4-3 lead until the bottom of the sixth when Corey Hart struck again, hitting his second solo shot in as many at-bats, and tying the game at four in the process.

The score stayed knotted at four until the top of the ninth when the Sox went to work off one of the toughest closers in baseball, Trevor Hoffman. Gordon Beckham led off the ninth by grounding out to third. Jim Thome, who pinch hit for Matt Thornton, walked and was replaced by pinch-runner, Clayton Richard! Yes, that Clayton Richard, and he went to second on Scott Podsednik's second hit of the game. Alexei Ramirez followed with a fly out to center, but with two outs, A.J. Pierzynski came through in the clutch. His single to center scored Clayton Richard with the go-ahead run. Bobby Jenks came on to pitch the ninth and got the outs he needed to record his 14th save of the season. Sox win 5-4!

After looking pretty good in the last two games of the series north of the border, the Sox are rewarded with an off day tomorrow, but get right back to work with more interleague play on Tuesday night against their National League rivals eight miles north. John Danks (4-5, 4.81) will start for the South Siders, and the North Siders will counter with Carlos Zambrano (4-2, 3.39). The first pitch is set for 7:05p CDT at Wrigley Field and the game will be broadcast on CSN.

Critic's Corner:
 Good relief pitching and clutch hitting in the ninth inning lead the Sox to vitory.
